The idea of a functional butler tray dates back to the 18th century and is still popular today. This space-saving and decorative little table finds its niche in any room. Tracy is a small masterpiece of handcrafting skill. The tray is covered in genuine silver leaf and finished with several layers of clear varnish before being sanded and polished for many hours with ever-finer sandpaper until the perfect shine is achieved. The folding stand is also covered in silver leaf and finished using this sophisticated lacquer technique. The surface should only be cleaned with a soft, non-abrasive cloth, which may also be damp. Abrasive cleaning agents and sharp objects will scratch the surface.
